Lewis Hamilton is Mercedes’ best chance of winning despite George Russell’s 15 point gap, says F1 pundit

LEWIS HAMILTON is still Mercedes’ best chance of claiming a win, not George Russell, claims Jolyon Palmer. “But I think that doesn’t really tell the picture of the Mercedes story. “I think George has been impressive, if he beats Lewis it will be an amazing achievement. “But I do think the more the season’s gone on, the more Lewis looks like Lewis again.”. He added: “At the start of the year, there was a really odd moment where everyone was a bit perplexed [thinking] ‘is George Russell, gonna outdo Lewis Hamilton?’ and for the first six, seven races, it was looking that way. “As the season’s gone on, I think Lewis has got on top. “And I think if they do have a title-challenging car next year, I still think it’d be Lewis that would be that man.”.
